Also, the film was set on June 22nd, 1961. Although it had been in my netflix queue for a weeks, I accidentally ended up watching it exactly 50 years to the day! How's that for a random coincidence.
The cinematography of the movie also made me wish I could to take a trip back to 1960s Paris immediately.
|methinks Wes Anderson really liked this opening title sequence|
If that isn't inspiration enough, the movie also found a way to fit a three minute slapstick silent film featuring Jean-Luc Godard and Anna Karina into the plot somehow. Really, what more could you ask for?
